- We are the 5-4 team and have won 2 games in a row. They are the 4-5 team and have lost 4 of their last five games. Why would we be afraid of them?

- Malik Cunningham left the Clemson game with an ankle injury. What if it’s more than an ‘owie’? Speed is his game but it’s hard to go on bad wheels.

- We lead the ACC with 33 sacks with three games to go. In other words, we are sacking the other teams this year like they sacked us the last two years.

- Sacks should equate to takeovers. We are stuck at 6 on the season after getting 80 in the previous three years. We are due for the dam to break. Imagine if this team benefits from the 24 turnovers last year’s team couldn’t take advantage of?

- We have the 14th best defense in the country, giving up just 317 yard per game, our lowest total in 11 years. Louisville? 87th.

- We are just as explosive as Louisville is: “The Orange have the second-most rushes from scrimmage of 10+ yards (76), 20+ yards (24) and 40+ yards (8) in the nation. In addition, Syracuse's 11 30+ yard runs tie for fourth nationally.” (Cardinal Authority)

- Their leading rusher other than Cunningham, Jalen Mitchell, has 531 yards at 4.4 per carry and 4 TDs. Out leading rusher other than Shrader, Sean Tucker, has 1,267 yards at 6.3 with 11TDs. In fact, Tucker and Shrader have rushed for 1,937 yards rushing, 281 more than any other duo in the country.

- Put up 4 fingers. The Cardinals have been out-scored 62-23 in that quarter.

5-4 and 3+ to go!

LET’S GO ORANGE!!!
